Atmosphere

Tailgating at Akron offers something for everyone no matter how wild or how mild you like to tailgate. For those of you looking to get rowdy and wild then the lawn near the south end zone is the place to be. The students here love to party hard before filing into the stadium to cheer on their Zips, so bring a handle and join in the game day fun.

If partying hard isn’t what you’re looking for, then head over to the parking lots where the more conventional way of tailgating takes place. The car park can be a family oriented environment on game day and offer a perfect place to grill, drink, play games, and socialize before the game. You’ll even get the chance to watch the Ohio’s Pride marching band march through the tailgate, as the pump up the crowd and get everyone in the gameday spirit.

You’ll also find plenty of outstanding cuisine at Zips tailgates. Sometimes Zips fans will eat all three meals at the tailgate with favorites including ribs, chicken chili, and potato casserole. Bring some of your favorites to share and join in on rich experience that is tailgating at Akron.
No matter how hard you like to party, you’ll enjoy your time at Akron where there is plenty to eat and plenty of new friends to make, as everyone here is very friendly and welcoming to fellow fans.
